From County Donegal, The Henry Girls (Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin) have found a way to personalize their music with crystalline vocals, lilting melodies and eclectic influences. Produced by Calum Malcolm, December Moon also offers relaxed sophistication in its arrangements. Karen plays fiddle, viola, guitar, banjo and even some ukulele. Joleen is a harper, but she also adds a little mandolin and piano to the mix. Lorna's instrumental contributions are more understated, with some piano, accordion and chimes on a few tracks. All three women have music degrees, teach regularly, and have toured for years. Recently, they appeared as backing vocalists on Mary Black's Stories from the Steeples. Without any punk rock sensibilities, the cover of Elvis Costello's 'Watching the Detectives' is a good choice for musicians who appreciate that English singer-songwriters literate lyrics and eclecticism. Throughout the set, many skillful musicians contribute a variety of sounds ranging from Atenteben bamboo flute to Dobro and a horn section is also present.
